The Municipalist School is a space for self-training and knowledge exchange based on different experiences of municipalism throughout Europe. These are the materials of the first session, titled ‘Can municipalism change the institutions?’ and here you have a short description about this meeting and the speakers:
One of the common features of the municipalist experiences all over Europe is disseminating political power among citizens at the local level. This goal implies, on the one hand, a different relationship between the citizen and the urban space, based on the re-appropriation of common goods. On the other hand, it means the development of new tools and methods of political participation, allowing a dialectic confrontation for policy-making. Can these practices lead to the creation of new institutions from below? That is the central question in this meeting, moderated by Brais García, from Marea Atlántica (La Coruña, Spain). With Maria Francesca De Tullio, L’Asilo (Naples, Italy) and part of the Emerging Urban Commons Network, Mark Langdon, SANE (Glasgow, Scotland) and Bruno Cristofoli, La Belle Démocratie (France).
